Declined Assisted Suicide... Aug 8th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin
Why are our officials so opposed to assisted suicide?
Have they been told by some activists to shut up and get on side?
Or does one or two religions dominate that Ottawa place?
So therefore their rightious ideas are pushed right in our face.
Why are these officials so busy behind those locked closed doors?
And will not discuss death-with-dignity because preachers might roar,
From high up on a pulpit while wearing colored holy clothes,
As if, you might be the one who deserves a punch in the nose.
If you are lucky enough to be reading these poems on this blog,
Sitting in front of your computer with your mind in a fog,
And death-with-dignity has never even crossed your mind,
But it might some day because eventual death cannot be declined.
